India skipper Rohit Sharma has tested positive for COVID-19 following a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) conducted on Saturday.

The 35-year-old, who was participating in a four-day game against Leicestershire, has gone into quarantine.

“Captain Mr Rohit Sharma has tested positive for COVID-19 following a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) conducted on Saturday. He is currently in isolation at the team hotel and is under the care of the BCCI Medical Team.”

Rohit’s availability for the final Test will now depend on his recovery.

“An RT-PCT Test will be conducted on Sunday to ascertain his CT value,” said Jay Shah.

India lead the five-match series 2-1. The rescheduled game is a part of last year’s series that was postponed after the fourth Test due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Indian camp.
